My name is Sharon Garofalow. Based in So Cal, I am the mom to two amazing little boys and married to the raddest man in all the land. This is where I share a collection of cool, created by me or curated from around the web. I focus on untraditional party themes, unfussy fashion and creative activities for your modern family.
Did you ever make clove studded oranges for Christmas when you were little? We did. These might be two of my favorite smells in the world. When my boys started asking to carve our pumpkins, I kept telling them no, that it was too early. Too many years we cut in to the pumpkins, making adorably spooky faces, only to find them all moldy and gross before Halloween. So in order to have them feel like they were making pumpkin faces I decided to give them oranges and cloves.
